The Human Rights Program (HRP) offers fellowships to students, alumni, scholars, and advocates who have demonstrated commitment to the field of human rights. The fellowships are designed to advance the scholarship and practical experience of the individuals who receive them.
Our Visiting Fellows Program provides scholars and advocates with an opportunity to step back from teaching or practice and conduct a serious inquiry in the field of human rights. Typically, fellows come from outside the United States and spend between one semester and a full academic year in residence at the Law School researching and writing on a specific human rights topic.
HRP also offers fellowships for students and recent graduates of the Law School. The Henigson and Satter Fellowships provide graduates a chance to work with a human rights organization for a year. For many, these fellowships serve as a critical launching pad for their careers. In addition, HRP supports law students with Summer Fellowships and Winter Fellowships. These fellowships provide rich professional, personal, and intellectual opportunities and are often a significant part of the Harvard human rights experience.
